    December 13, 2020 - Bright red fruit. Good concentration and texture. This got better with an hour of air out from the bottle (no decant). Mix of red and dark berries, some spice, more nuanced. Really good village level effort.

    June 17, 2020 - Closed on the nose but great energy on the palate. A bit foursquare by Liger standards, but very impressive.

    January 22, 2019 - I love Comte Liger Belair and after having drunk his 09 Reignots and Romanee I didn't hesitate to order this at the Fat Duck for lunch. I certainly wouldn't come to regret it! Decanted and then drank over 3 hours this was all I was hoping for. Visually fairly developed with some browning, the nose was so sublime with an autumnal bouquet of damp leaves, earth, some wood. The palate showed the oak treatment but unlike a 15 Colombiere I had recently where the new oak seemed to overpower the fruit it was seamlessly integrated here and the fruit had absorbed most of the wood. It was a classy juice with wonderful balance, minerality, and a core sweetness of cherry fruit coming through with more air.
    For a village wine this was a total knock-out and in absolute terms an outstanding Burgundy which would easily put to shame most 1er and many GCs. I think this is at peak now. Great stuff.

    June 16, 2018 - PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Leaf”): Bright ruby to the eyes.

    On the nose mostly red berry (strawberries) and cherry fruits, quite ethereal for a village level indeed. The nose gets more airy with some rest (without swirls) in glass too. Elegant florals and classic Vosne-style spices with some creme on top. The ripeness of the vintage and the fine oak are evident with even longer rest in glass and as the temperature increases a little. Very good depth for this level.

    Minerality really comes through on the palate. Good acidity though I won’t mind a little more? Has good volume and a matching level of complexity in flavours. Very refined with suave tannins and a clean, persistent finish.

    Very enjoyable now though I am not sure how much more this will offer except softer tannins in time.

    A persuasive village wine this is. 93-94 points.

    August 20, 2017 - Wow, this is super. It has taken to the second day for this to shine. Red fruit, spice, and a stemmy feel (I don't know if stems are included). This is staining and saturated, textured wine, but it still maintains clarity, purity. This is really delicious, and begs to be sipped. I have quite a few L-B, but I think this is the first one I have drunk. If you open one now, it will need some air, but I think you will happily surprised. Can easily go quite a few more years for sure.
